The following story was narrated by Brother Mahmood from Preston, England.

Once, he along with a group of Muslims were visiting a city for inviting others to Allah. They happened to pass by a group of youths who were Muslims by birth but became gang members. The brothers didn't give those gang members the negative attitude that others give while passing by them. Rather, they went and shook hands with them out of brotherhood.

With love and affection, the brothers invited the youths to come to the Mosque. Not being familiar with such kindness, the gang members were surprised and decided to come to the Mosque for once. These youths were so much away from Islam that they were smoking in the Mosque and doing a lot of other disrespectful acts. However, Brother Mahmood and others were discussing with them about the Greatness of Allah with patience and endurance. A time came when the brothers had to return to their homes and before leaving they advised the gang members to turn towards Allah.

After several years, Brother Mahmood was attending a large gathering of Muslims when suddenly someone called him from the back. There were few people dressed in sunnah standing behind him. They asked Brother Mahmood if he recognizes them. They told him, “We are those gang members whom you visited few years back. We decided to go out and learn more about Islam and eventually changed our lives.”


We should never underestimate certain people because of the way they are as every individual has the capacity to become a friend of Allah Ta'alah. Never think low of anyone, no matter what they may be doing. It is only Allah who guides; we can only try with kindness to reach out to their hearts.
